Ok, what's the worst food you have ever eaten?
It can be anything and from anywhere in the world.

Me, I choose boca burgers. I had them the other day, and I still taste that horrible taste in my mouth. I swear...that was like eating a cardboard/styrofoam mixture of some sorts. I don't understand how some of my friends eat that $@%&!

Which food do you nominate as the worst food you have ever tasted?

2. Lychee nuts. Yeccch!
I tried one a couple years ago, and it tasted like I imagine an eyeball must taste.

Kind of moist, but squishy, not really sweet, not really anything. Just....gross!!!!!!

For the record, I LOVE Boca burgers! :P

That was my first AND last exposure to it!

I'm very leery now when people say, "These are really good! Try one!"

8. Kidneys
It's not that they taste bad (only had them in steak & kidney pie) but the idea of eating what an animal filters it's piss through. Yuck

Anyone had sweetbreads? I don't think I could bring myself to eat them.

40. I actually heard something about that...
a year or so ago from a health standpoint. I can't remember if it was on a talk show, NPR, or some other media.

Your fears are NOT unfounded. Kidneys are not the most healthful portion of animals to be eating. Sorru I can't remember the source!

22. I have never had a bad food.
I have had BADLY PREPARED food of just about every stripe.

There are a few foods I don't personally care for, though -- not a big fan of oysters (but I do like other bivalves), don't care for rice puddings -- but that doesn't mean they're "bad foods."

If I'm not mistaken, they're the organs that grind up the grain that the chicken eats. Quite tough, but I love them fried! Yum! :D

Sausages, they look very tasty. But in fact it's tripe stuffed with trip - at first it doesn't taste bad, just herbs and Dijon mustard (there is always mustard), but then...

I've heard that the seasoning is similar, but I believe the Louisiana style is not made from tripe.

47. No, it's quite a bit different.
I love a good cajun andouille. Never had andouillette, but -- it's chitlin sausage. Intestines bunched up and stuffed in, well, intestines.

Nothing against intestines, I prefer natural casings for my sausage. I just don't think I want the sausage to be ENTIRELY casings.

That said, I would try it, at least once.

39. hashee (I think that's what it was called)
Its a dish from the Republic of Georgia which is made by taking the left over parts of a pig (inners, knuckles, etc.) and boiling it. It smelled like the water used to cook hotdogs in and is servered in the morning with a bowl of crushed, raw garlic and salt. Originally a dish for the poor - they would use whatever was left over from the rich folks dinner - it is now used as a hangover helper....I got one spoonfull in my mouth and could barely swallow it.....worst thing - EVER

60. Leg of Lamb with Rice
In this once instance, I ordered a leg of lamb and it came with fat, yellow rice.

The lamb had a strange rotting taste.

As I ate it, I had a tactile and taste hallucination, that I was eating rotting meat, with maggots (the rice) writhing through it.

It was expensive, so I ate it anyway.

It was an... unpleasant.. meal.

64. for me, it was my first time at eating steamed chick inside of egg
For those who do not know, this will pretty much gross you out.

They take a fertilized egg of about maybe 10 days, (there is a small chicken in the egg), and they steam the egg for about 10 minutes. You take the egg, and use a spoon to break a hole in one end of it, then bottoms up, the entire chick slides into your mouth where you are supposed to chew it up......yum.....crunch crunch crunch, pull some feathers out, oooops, here is a beak, crunch crunch cruch, stop gag reflex 5 or 6 times, eyes water, crunch, gag, cruch, gag, pull out more feathers and bones and stuff, crunch, crunch, ugggghhhhh, gag, almost puke, blah.....finally had to spit it out before I lost it....

Not something I will ever try again.

74. Haggis!
Edited on Thu May-06-04 03:51 PM by Padraig18
Haggis is the most disgusting food ever to be dreamt up by a half-starved and semi-demented people... "Oh hell, the loch will thaw in a week or so, so I guess we CAN boil chopped-up lungs in a sheep's stomach and eat it, just to stay alive until we can catch some fish"... :P

81. I was looking to see if anyone had
said boiled okra.

I don't care if they mix it in some louisiana type dish or whether it's boiled alone. It's the nastiest most peurile stuff I've ever had.

I can barely tolerate it fried because the slime is still there in the middle.

Eons ago someone was walking along a beach and saw one and said; "I wonder what that big bug looking thing tastes like?"

He was an asshole.

92. I disagree
Edited on Thu May-06-04 04:32 PM by Kellanved
It depends on where you look - there is a Korean community in every western major city, as a result we *do* have acceptable Korean food. It's just not trivial to find.

94. I LOVE Korean food.
I just found that the korean food served in Germany was uniformly horrible. If it was just one restaurant, I'd write it off as just being a bad one, but it was more than a couple of them.

95. well
Finding a good Asian restaurant in Germany is a challenge - but not an impossibly hard one (1. find someone from the nation you're looking for and ask. 2. Get the waiter to bring you the "real" menu).

I have to admit that the situation has improved vastly in the past five years - it was not always that way.

98. There is a Korean restaurant that sell food and malt liquor in my town
Most of their food is good, but there is always a bit of kimchi. The kimchi is bad.

100. 100 year old eggs
An odd friend of mine--a genius with a glass eye that seemed to move in the wrong direction--insisted I try a 100 year old egg. From what I understand they're a Chinese delicacy. I think they are duck eggs, and are "cooked" by burying them underground for several months.

Well, to eat this egg, you pound the side of spoon against it to chip away hard dried mud. It takes a few minutes. Finally, you reach this classic delicacy. You break away the shell and the aroma of rotten eggs immediately greets you. In fact, at this point I tried to turn down the egg, but my eccentric friend was so offended, I had to continue.

When the shell is removed, you have stinking egg that looks awful. The part you know to be the white of the egg is a translucent brown and the part you know as the yolk is a liquid green. It tastes as good as it sounds. It was an almost retching experience.

101. school cafeteria pizza
closely followed by school cafeteria hot dogs, then hamburgers.

And don't forget the school cafeteria "salad;" a little condiment cup filled with wilted, browning iceberg lettuce and a few carrot scrapings.
